Thanks Kevin. I just totally missed him.

Man, I wish The Defenders and The Punisher would’ve popped out of one of those portals. Coulson’s Shield team would’ve been cool, too.

"I imagine he left it on Asgard when he returned the stone there. So Thor would have it for the rest of Thor the Dark world"

Thanks! I had wondered this for a bit too. But that should have been an easy one when you say it like that.

"- the big battle at the end was thrilling.  And Cap showing how worthy he was did...well, it worked for me big time.  But it does take some handwaving to explain the scene in Age of Ultron.  (I can think of numerous explanations...but movies shouldn't need me or any other audience member to do that).  "

I thought this was pretty easy myself.  Trying to lift the hammer to show off for the guys = not quite worth enough.  

Trying to lift the hammer to likely sacrifice yourself for the greater good of life everywhere = should probably be worthy enough. 

Its magic. The rules are whatever they need to be.

Much like the rules of time travel in this movie.

I could on about all the issues I had with INFINITY WAR, but:

ENDGAME blew me away.  

Some of it could be labeled fan service (or even fanwank), but for me, it worked in spades, and more importantly, felt earned within the confines of this long-established Marvel Cinematic Universe.

With some admitted nitpicks here or there, I loved just about every minute of it, and at 3 hours, it flew right by.  (Also loved the nod to STAR TREK VI in the way they presented the final credits, too!)

I already told my son we're going to see this 2 or even 3 more times!

Even this is a bit of overthink, I think. Cap had a lot of experiences between AGE OF ULTRON and ENDGAME. From saving Bucky and getting over his regret to taking a stand against the US Government to learning to still be a hero without the costume and shield and without the support of the government and Stark. He's not the exact same person he was in AOU, and any of those things could have tipped the scales from almost worthy to worthy.

Except for the end (which is still pretty ambiguous about what Cap did), the rules were consistent about changing the past creating an alternate timeline.

All I know is, Thor's "I knew it!!" totally helped sell that moment with Cap & the hammer...

Might as well go on record:

$1 billion in the U.S. alone.  It's that good, and that much of a tear-jerking crowd-pleaser.

This was definitely an epic film but the closing moments didn't really feel like they fit the end of the era it's been set up as. I think part of it was I didn't expect the five years later aspect to remain. That seems like a very weird aspect to keep. Especially when it relates to Peter Parker and his circle of friends/acquaintances.

Most of the problems that I had with this movie stems from the 5 year time jump. I also didn't like what Cap did in the end of the film. Cap would never give up being Cap to live a happy normal life with the love of his dreams.
